- * A SOLDIER'S PRAYER * -

I stand here in this foreign land
As I look into the sky
And see a full and glowing moon
Abiding there on High.

So far away, I know you are,
In a land where Freedom stands
That's why I am still fighting,
Here in these foreign lands.

In freedom, my eyes behold
The beauty as I see;
And pray that soon....no more in fear
Those unshackled, will stand with me.

For everyday, I cherish more....
The freedom for which I fight
And pray these actions that I take
Will help our lands Unite.

And some day soon, with golden hand,
God might bless us with His love
And shed His light from that same moon
To bless All from above.

    And some day soon, with golden hand,
    God might bless us with His love
    And shed His light from that same moon
    To bless All from above. Such a great hope in the midst of war and you wrote using the mouth of a living soldier.....
